After a cool and cloudy week, things are expected to warm up starting Saturday. Environment and Climate Change meteorologist Terri Lang said the warm weather is due to a ridge of high pressure coming through Western Canada.

"When we have one of these (high pressure ridges) setup, it brings warm weather to much of Western Canada including Saskatchewan this time around."

Lang figures temperatures will not reach the warning criteria, which is highs above 32 degrees for two days straight, or a humidex value of 38 and overnight lows have to be at least 16 degrees.

Lang added this warmer weather should stick around into next Wednesday, before a cold front moves through causing a chance for thundershowers and rain. 

Lang also gave some reminders about what to do in dealing with the heat.

"People have to remember to care in the heat. Watch your exposure to the sun especially during the high sun times and seek shade. Keep yourself hydrated, make sure you have sunscreen on and take care of your pets and young children."
